Equipment must never be a limitation to whatever we do in life. However, astronomy presents a different thing since a bigger telescope will allow bigger and better views of almost every astronomical object visible from our planet. With this in mind, the AAP would like to invite you to contribute to our fundraising to purchase a 10 inch dobsonian telescope for the organization to use during official functions.
A 10 inch dobsonian telescope has a limiting stellar magnitude of 14.7 which means that it can see fainter stars. And the generous aperture will definitely allow viewing of thousands of deep sky objects. What's most important about this is that this class of telescope will allow many people, through the various efforts of the AAP, to appreciate and know the beauty of our galaxy and the place of humanity in this universe.
It is our goal to purchase a good telescope such as a 10 inch dobsonian in one year to aid us in different star parties and to be able to reach out more to the Filipino public and foster in them awareness and love for the night sky. We hope that in one year, starting today - February 4, 2011 - we will be able to purchase such telescope for future applications.
For AAP members, let this be our goal. And let our motivation be the Filipino youth who have not yet encountered the stars and the night sky because of pollution and light ruining the vast starscape of the evening that our grandfathers and ancestors have once experienced.
